So this is fashion, is it?

THIS IS A photo of Mrs Kasman's new jeans and no, she hasn't fallen and ripped them, she bought them like this!

Now I'm not exactly a fashion icon and in my day when our jeans reached this stage we binned them and bought a new pair.

Mrs Kasman isn't really a slave to fashion but she does like to keep up with the times so when she saw these jeans in a sale for a very reasonable price (so she said) she just had to have them.

They are, apparently, 'designer jeans' with strategically placed and carefully done rips in them. The rips are even hemmed for added durability (the irony of this seems to have escaped the manufacturer).

If only I had known that all those torn and tattered pairs of jeans I've binned over the years would become fashionable I'd have kept them and made a fortune reselling them as the height of fashion.

Yes, I have seen some of these around recently. Bit draughty when the wind blows!

I bought a pair of ripped jeans recently, not normally my thing but I fancied a change. They were fab actually until the next time I wore them when while putting them on I put my foot right through one of the ripped bits so now they are both intentionally and unintentionally ripped!

I should hope she won't next buy those falling-down trousers commonly seen in the U.S. Ah, well... There's no accounting for tastes. There are even tattoos that run the full length of the arm. Yes, even women are getting them. If I were young and single, I would automatically decline marriage to a woman so bedecked.

Not a tattoo fan then? I might just post a photo of my latest one - her name's Carmen emoticon :winking:

There's nothing funny about the price. They were more expensive than a normal pair of jeans emoticon :sad:

Sweet! With one of those huge ribbon-swirled hearts and an arrow through it?

LOL. In my day when jeans reached this stage we cut them off and wore them as shorts. In the late 60s and early 70s, the big deal was "designer jeans". You weren't anybody if you didn't have a pair of Calvin Klein jeans. Then in the late 70s, believe it or not, I actually saw people starting to wear their jeans in strange ways. Weird things started happening with jeans. They were ripping them, they were "distressing" them (O.o) ... and not only that but people were paying twice the price for a pair of them! I blame it all on the solar eclipse that happened yesterday. :) I'm lamenting just like you. If only I had known. Could have made a fortune!! :)
